I wasn't aware that DaVinci had provided art work that was intended to be a functional interface for a tool that someone would presumably use for extended periods. I don't recall having ever read about DaVinci putting his work on display, soliciting feedback.

I've already stated that this is a wonderfully done theme. If I had the PS skills, I certainly would do my own.

Maybe in the future solicitations for feedback should provide boundaries/acceptable feedback guidelines, along with whatever qualifications/certifications the person providing feedback needs to have.

I said it's a minor thing. Geez.

You criticised a theme. Someone criticised your criticism. You are now criticising the criticism of your criticism.

Please try not see this post as a criticism of your criticism of the criticism of your criticism.

If anyone wishes to criticise me for criticising his criticism of the criticism of his criticism, please feel free. But it probably won't help anyone make a theme.

As nobody has the same colour perception, independantly of the growing age vision problems which cause brightness and readibility problems, I don't think anybody can do a theme that fits to everybody.

HAAALP !!!!

Went to Stash amd downloaded ... now on 3rd try, and not getting anything like what is showing here.
Likely oldheimer's issue here, but wondering if current Stash link is ok ?

Reaper 5.5.2 and seems to only display unknown Theme.
How to clear everything out so only new RE[a]DD Theme loads ? Tried Closing, New Project, but no RE[a]DD ....

Never had anything like this before ... v5.5.2 ?? Unzipped RE[a}DD in Download Folder and double-clicked. Reaper opens but not to this Theme. Now always returns to unknown Theme no matter what I do. Even opened New project to another reliable Theme, saved, closed, tried RE[A]DD zip again, and back to earlier Unk Theme.

Unistalled Reaper v5.5.2, reinstalled, no change.
---------------------------------------------------

(edit) Have (2) Reaper v5.5.2 DAW(s). Exact same process on DAW (2) and all is fine ....
Obviously some settings bad and will start checking ....

try this

when you unzipped what you downloaded it likely made a folder that includes the toolbars and other parts for Redd...

you don't 'have' to use those to see the basic REDD theme... but you MUST use the file named

RE[a]DD.ReaperThemeZip

so... copy that into the root of your Reaper\ColorThemes folder

then inside reaper, go to options\themes [the top line of menus] and you should see RE[a]DD as a choice... clk on it

Done.
So cool !!! Still using some of your Spectrasonics/Nebula help from looong ago.

Perfect, easy solution and all is fine. Had RE[a]DD zip 'folder' in there, but clearly not what was correct.
Not sure why the same process on other DAW worked differently on this one .... but cockpit error most likely.

Always good to see your posts, as I still monitor Forum ... just don't post much now.

THX and take care.

I am confused...

"Feedback and suggestion welcomed in the 'RE[a]DD' thread ('Reaper Theme Files and Color Sets' forum)."
I would not have given my 2 cents if it was not asked for.

Love the theme greatly...I wish there was and anti-glare version.
I may try your suggestion of modifying the .png myself.

Thanks.

Default v1.20 is in the stash...

Sorry for the late answer and, hopi, thanks for helping sostenuto !
@BobF & madahorn : no harm done, really. Check the update described below : maybe you'll feel better with this one...

------
So, another update, that I couldn't avoid, as it brings few more enhancements that were needed, in my view, especially the two first ones...

1) The more evident : I changed both the mixer faders background and the thumbs and increased their movement length. While I was at it, I recalibrate the scale to the Reaper default -72/+12 dB fader range, the meters staying with a -72/+6dB one. Think it's much more REDD looking, this way (screenshots updated in the first post)...

2) An enhancement that I should never had to do : actually, when I received the project, the first thing that I did is was to try optimizing it as much as I could and, among others, I got rid of all the overlays that were going with the buttons. Wrong move and I quickly regret it ! But I was still afraid to reintroduce them, dreading the 2 Mb stash ceiling, until the last 1.10 update : I saw then that there was still room for them. So I recreated them all, optimizing each one as much as I could, while hoping that all would fit. The result is that the button labels no longer act as if they were part of the control, allowing a much easier use of any right-clicking and makes the whole thing more coherent, workflow related.

3) Added : the still missing 'Original tint' layout for the transport bar.

4) Few more optimizations in the tcp, the main one aimed to allow a more persistent view of the tcp.fxin control which was disappearing as soon as the tcp panel width was going under 440 pixels.

@users of previous versions : only the .ReaperThemeZip file needs to be updated.

Think I'm almost done with this theme. Hope it will be useful for some of you...

Nice update. The additional clarity in/around the faders is a big improvement for me.

Much thanks

Hi Cubic... nice update... one possible niggle:

the text that gets shown on the TCP REC IN field....
as it is now it is left justified...
I think it would look consistently better if it was center justified...
I don't know if that is possible, so I'm just 'saying'...

Thanks to you all !

@cprompt
Interesting to see the two confronted. It gives me one or two ideas for further improvements, by the way...

@hopi
I have often wondered if, indeed, centering this text wouldn't be better. The problem is this one : as long as the whole text is short enough, yes, it would be better to center it. The issue arises when your MIDI interface, as mine, is displayed as a rather long chain such as this one : E-DSP MIDI Port 2 [EC00]. Is it better to center it in this case ? Walter neither allows a test on a chain length, nor gives us the ability to truncate a chain.

Added to this, there is a theming issue. Theoretically (according to the available documentation), you can left align, center or right align this parameter value display with the matching Walter statement (the fifth parameter is the one involved here : 0 for let alignment, 0.5 for center, 1 for right alignment).

Left aligned, using set tcp.recinput.margin [4 5 4 3 0], I get this :
MIDI:E-DSP MIDI Port 2 [E

Centered, using set tcp.recinput.margin [4 5 4 3 0.5], I get this :
MIDI:E-DSP MIDI Port 2 [E

An finally, right aligned, using set tcp.recinput.margin [4 5 4 3 1], I get this :
rt 2 [EC00]: All channels

In other words, the 0.5 value, as fifth parameter for horizontal centering doesn't work. This is a Walter bug, supposed to be solved by the bakers, and it's not the only one. So, I'm afraid that we'll have to do with the present situation...

ah another f##king bug.. %^(

oh well, thanks for the clear explain... and I guess we gotta live with it...for now

I might imagine a solution IF we could use an alias name for the MIDI interface[s]

This is really good and going well. When I used the Waves plug I would always think "Man this would make a rad theme". And now it does!
Waves has amazing looking plugins. The Redd and the Kramer plugs. I wish I had both in a Theme.
But thank you for making a Theme like this. I have made a template loaded with this theme, Waves Redd, Abbey Road, and some other vintage plugs. Super cool!

Fingers Crossed for Eddie Kramer v1 theme.

I know this isnt straight from the plugin. But I do like how the plug is blackish around the fader for the meter.
I also dig the knobs for pan and such more on the plugin. I think those could be spruced up a touch. Amazing job though.

Really cool looking theme. Thanks!

No link in first post. Not released?

Suggestion: Although I understand the name-choice RE[a]DD
it doesn't look that good (the name itself). I suggest dropping the [a].

Hi, JJ

Could you post a little screenshot concerning these ? Just to see if I could do something about them...

Hi, G-Sun

And sorry... The link has probably been accidently deleted the last time I did an update of the post. So, I just put it back.

About the name, well, I got the project with this one and didn't feel like changing it, as I guess that it has been named to follow the three first letters of 'Reaper'...

The EMI stuff is the coolest ever. I have drooled over it for years. Now, this is just me getting picky or making a wish list. I think the fader part could be more black. And maybe the default color be more like my pick. I made it close to the original as I could. I made the Master like the EMI grey. Also the Master being EMI grey would look "slicker than greased owl sh1t" with the red knob.

The pan knob blends in to much imho. None of it need to be just like the waves plug. I only showed that because waves spends a heap of money on the gfx design.
Just as we reference a mix, I am using these plugins the same.

A slide switch might be cool as well for the bypass. And a left to right long throw switch for the Solo.
Analog Meters would make my mind explode, but I am guessing that is super hard.
XLR or 1/4 jacks would be super neat.

If you had a layout with the default colors, it would also beat super cool if the colors would change the fader knob and the fader meter only? Maybe soft color.
The second link has ideas for the color. It looks really cool up close. Amazing work bro!

Oh, is it at all possible to put a high and low pass on each channel use the js plug? Like each channel in the mixer would have to chicken head knobs that do that.
Am I just dreaming with that? I don't know what is and not possible.

Thanks for your time and amazing work!

I figured I might as well be a total pain, and throw out 1 more cent to make 3.

In the mixer control panel, it would be rad to have a blank track. I like to add 3 blank tracks or so to break up the mixer control panel. Makes the workflow really smooth.

Hi, Jimmy and thank for chiming in. So, let's take all this in order :

1) Concerning the fader, which part should be more black ?

2) About the pan/width knobs, I guess that you mean that they aren't enough visible from the background ?

3) The slide switches for bypass and solo. Hmmm, why not ? But let me see first if there is enough place for them, especially in the 'Narrow' layouts.

4) Sadly, no 'analog' meter addition is possible. The meters in Reaper are managed with a specific process that can't be touched. The only things we can do about them are changing their colors and backgrounds.

5) Concerning the faders color, it can be done but only as additional layouts. And for each color, both a subfolder and a graphic file need to be created. I cannot do this with the present state of the project : it would take too much place, as, to be credible, at least 4 colors should be implemented, this for both the 'Normal' and 'Narrow' already existing layouts. And it's not really a REDD feature : your second link shows clearly that it's part of the EMI TG generation of mixers which followed the REDD one.

6) About the filters, the only way to do so is using the js plug as FX or input FX, adding them in the extended area of the mixer. The only controls that we can put in a mixer strip are listed in the theming documentation. But yes, it would be nice to be able to add a kind of generic one which could be used to start a lua script, in example...

7) About the separators, this is doable, provided that I don't need to create additional mixer and tcp background files. To be honest, they were existing when I received the project and I removed them : they were taking something like 120 kb, which was too much, in my view. I'll see if I can reimplement them in a more economical way.

Beside all this, and in a more general way, you can see that I am almost hitting the dreaded 2 Mb stash ceiling for this theme, so any change need to be carefully weighted. But all this is noted : I'll see what I can do with the present project state. I have more or less planned an update, but I have another project that I want to finish first.

Stay tuned and thanks again for the suggestions.

hopi's thoughts:

ummm ...even 'if' it is not totally kosher, having the four color sliders is a nice feature to help organize the mixer in a project... and though I know it takes some pixel work, sooner or later someone is gonna do a mod with them... soooooo it might as well be Cubic [the master] so it gets done really right [just my opinion]

then as to the increase in file size... IF indeed it kicks it over the stash limit, then we'd have to compress it as a multipart rar file and a user would have to dl both parts.... this has been done before for some huge files and it's not a terrible thing.

Thanks Cubic, your so dang cool man. Photobucket won't let me post pictures now. I will link a pix, that makes it easier to see what I mean. Reading your post I think you understand what I am king about. The fader part I was talking about is the dark metal around the fader meter. The switch, pan knob, and colors would be super cool though. And some lane spacers in t mixer.
This theme could really be a top theme for sure. I am really enjoying it.

You're probably right and I'm probably too much focused on the 2 Mb ceiling. I'll see what I can do about the faders colors and other stuff asked for by Jimmy in previous posts. Stay tuned...

I will gladly stay tuned.... and I think I did send you my mod with colors, or did I forget to do that???

anyway I do have one with a few colors and for the most part it works OK...
it could be better and I'd guess that if you do it, it will be better.

It IS a nice addition to the theme IMO

also, I think I mentioned this trick to reduce the file size:

1- in the png's folder, remove ANYTHING that is extra... as I recall there were some copies of png files that did not need to be there...
2- run everything that remains through pngauntlet ...even if this has been done before... let them all comress and overwrite again

3- save it as a xxxx.ReaperThemeZip again and then
use winrar to compress that file to a .rar file.... this really brings the size way down...

try zipping it twice.
compress it in a zip file, then compress that zip file into a new zip file.
